How Do I Remove Printer Pro Desktop From My iMac?

I just got a new iMac compatible printer and was going around and deleting the old software. One thing I did notice that under Launchpad there was an app called Printer Pro Desktop. I do not remember installing it and it will not delete from Launchpad. Went online and searched how to delete it and all I get are companies selling removal software to get rid of it (don’t trust them). Any suggestions how to get rid of it? I click on it and it does nothing.
Thanks,

    A quick search turned up that Printer Pro Desktop is from Readdle and it seems to be some sort of support app for printing from from Readdle apps on iOS through your Mac. Does that ring a bell?

    Frustratingly, they don’t seem to have uninstall instructions at their site. However, their install instructions (https://support.readdle.com/ppd/) are pretty clear — it is just a matter of dragging and dropping the app into the Applications folder. So that means it probably doesn’t install anything anywhere else. So all you need to do to uninstall it is to drag and drop the application from the Applications folder to the Trash.

    Thanks Gary. I just got info from their support how to get rid of it. The trick is to go to the icons on the upper right corner of your screen and click the gear symbol from the Printer Pro icon (didn’t know it was there). Right click and select quit and then you can drag it to the trash. Keep forgetting those icons up there. Thanks for the help!
